Spills and Disposal:
Clean up all spills and splashes promptly; avoid secondary
accidents. Disposal of small spillages only. For large spillages
liquids should be contained using sand or earth, and both
liquids and solids then transferred to salvage containers.
Residues should be treated as for small spillages.
CAUTION: Before dealing with spillage take necessary
protective measures, inform others to keep at a safe distance
and, for flammable materials, shut off all possible sources of
Avoid generating dust.
What cannot be recovered should be transferred to a suitable
container. Arrange removal by a disposals company. Wash
site of spillage thoroughly with water and detergent.
8. Accidental release measures
Ensure personal safety, mark out contaminated area with signs and prevent unauthorized
access. Turn leaking containers upright to prevent further spillage. Evacuate area. Wear self-
contained breathing apparatus, rubber boots and heavy rubber gloves. Sweep up or absorb in
a suitable material. Avoid raising and exposure to dust. Ventilate area and wash spill site after

Conditions to be avoided
11. Exposure Controls / Personal Protection
Olaquindox has a very high risk of contact dermatitis, sub coetaneous eruptions and
photosensitivity in humans. It is important to carefully select the olaquindox premix used
based on its dust emission level under the EU approved Stauber Heubach test. Enterodox
micro granulate formulation emits practically no dust and conforms to all international dust
emission requirements. ENTERODOX IS APPROVED BY THE EU LEGISLATURE AS SAFE TO
USE IN STOCKFEED. AVOID ALL POWDERED OLAQUINDOX PREMIXES
Enterodox 100 BMP (olaquindox 10% in BMP form) conforms
to all international standards for dust emission. Its use under
commercial conditions is considered safe provided basic
OH&S precautions are taken.
Enterodox 100 BMP has a dust emission of <0.1mg/M3 air
throughout the whole feed chain and is the only olaquindox
premix to conform to the Australian TWA requirements of
0.1mg/M3 air for an 8 hour shift.
- Poisonous if swallowed.
- Will irritate the eyes, nose, throat and skin.
- Avoid contact with eyes and skin,
- Exposure to unprotected olaquindox may cause allergic and photo allergenic disorders.
- Do not inhale dust when opening the container and mixing into feed.
ENTERODOX 100 BMP
- Wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist, a washable hat, elbow length PVC
gloves, and half face piece respirator with dust cartridge or canister.
- After use and before eating, drinking or smoking, wash hands, arms and face thoroughly
with soap and water.
- After each day’s use, wash gloves, respirator and if rubber wash with detergent and warm
water, and contaminated clothing.

When mixing and handling, use protective clothing, impervious gloves, and dust respirator.
Operators should wash thoroughly with soap and water after handling. If accidental eye

Use mechanical exhaust ventilation.
Other Protective Equipment: In a manufacturing setting, wear chemical-resistant gloves
and body covering to minimize skin contact. If handled in a
ventilated enclosure, as in a laboratory setting, respirator
and goggles or face shield may not be required. Safety
glasses are always required.

12. Toxicological Information
(DeVries, 1990a). Upon exposure to light, olaquindox forms a reactive oxaziridine derivative.
This imino-N-oxide reacts with protein to form a photoallergen (DeVries, 1990b). In rats, oral
treatment with olaquindox at 60 mg/kg bw/day combined with exposure to ultraviolet light
(ultraviolet A for 12 hours) for four consecutive days induced a photoallergic reaction
characterized by weight loss, severe erthema, edema, and necrosis of the ears. A NOEL for
phototoxicity was not established (DeVries, 1990a)..
Enterodox 100 BMP (olaquindox 10% in BMP form) confoms to all
international standards for dust emission. Its use under commercial conditions is considered
safe provided basic OH&S precaustions are taken.
13. Ecological Information
There is no data available on the ecological risks of using olaquindox
14. Disposal Considerations
Disposal of bags:
Shake and empty contents into medicated feed. Do not
dispose of undiluted chemicals on site. Puncture or shred
and bury empty bags in a local authority landfill. If not
available bury the bag below 500 mm in a disposal pit
specifically marked and set up for this purpose clear of
waterways, vegetation and roots. Empty bags and product
should not be burnt.
